According to Deadline, Birds of Prey star Jurnee Smollett has been tapped to star opposite Golden Globe winner Taron Egerton in Apple TV+’s upcoming thriller drama Firebug.

Smollett is set to play Michelle, a rising-star detective who will work with Egerton’s enigmatic arson investigator to pursue the trail of two serial arsonists. The project is loosely inspired by true events told in truth.media’s Firebug podcast. This marks Smollett’s small-screen comeback, following her Emmy-nominated performance in 2020’s supernatural drama Lovecraft Country.

Who’s involved in Firebug?

Firebug is created, written and executive produced by Dennis Lehane. In addition to starring, the Rocketman star has also signed on to executive produce the project along with Richard Plepler, Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas and Kary Antholis. It hails from Apple Studios and Imperative Entertainment.

This marks Egerton’s latest collaboration with Apple, after starring in 2022’s crime drama series Black Bird, and in last year’s Tetris biopic. The Kingsman vet will next be seen in Netflix’s action thriller Carry-On.
